APM 2 cases now available, also come free with new APM 2s

Good news: the 3D Robotics store is now offering custom-molded cases for APM 2, in both top-pin and side-pin variety. They're $4.99 each. All new APM 2s now ship with these cases, included free!

They're smokey semi-transparent, so you can see the LEDs through the case. The button on the top connects to the APM 2 reset button.

What does it do except adding weight? 

Does it affect GPS? 

Do you just use 2 side tape now to fix it to frame? 

Dont get me wrong, they are nice looking (agree that other colors would be nicer.. time to make our auto pilot of choice stand out) but I will get these questions for sure from customers so asking here!

Another thing, i've cutted all of the vcc and gnd pinhead of the gps board because there were touching the top of the case

Those cases look really great, it protects the AMP2 and it’s much better to mount anywhere with Double Sided Foam Tape to protect against vibrations.

Hard luck, I had to make my own, what about cases for 3DR Radios?

Dany: It's mostly for protection. Doesn't affect GPS as far as we've been able to measure. Yes, you do use double-sided tape (or velcro) to secure it to your frame. It's got a nice flat bottom, so that's easy.
